You need to configure Boost.Build v2. You will also need to update the
source since I have modified the build files to use BOOST_ROOT to
reference Boost.Signals and Boost.DateTime.

boost-build.jam is used by BBv2. See
for setup instructions. You will also need to setup
boost/tools/build/v2/user-config.jam. You also need to have BOOST_ROOT
in either the environment variables or in the Jamfile configuration.

To get the library working with gcc, you need to uncomment the
<toolset>gcc: line and edit the location of libcomctl32.a.

See the BBv2 docs for setting it up (see above).

The new code update contains a few bug fixes, an update to the layout
manager logic and a working version of the flow layout (although this
does not yet wrap around controls).
